What kind of spider is this?
It’s about the size of a penny and I found it crawling around my sink.

Highly doubt a spider would be that small

To get a good answer, you need to post a photo of your sink.

Well, a decent photo and your location would certainly help.
Most of such spiders are wayward ground spiders.
They are harmless but a bit quick to catch by hand. Trap one between fingers, they likely bite and can sting pretty good. One feature to clue this type is they have very prominent spinnerets, tail pipes I call them.
One such spider is the parson spider, a link to images for these:
Yea, some people keep them for pets.

Can't tell without a picture, but if it's crawling in daylight in your sink in the US, it's not a dangerous one. The venomous spiders like black widow and other violin spiders stay in secluded places, and have no stamina.

Do you have a pic you could attach?
